Leaders vs Managers – Which are you?

Leaders vs Managers – Which are you?

On the Profitable Joyful Consulting podcast, I teach you how to increase your profits and enjoy your business more. In this episode, you’ll learn the differences between leadership and management.

Management and leadership are both important skills, but managing is a totally different skill set from leadership. You need both components in your business, whether you hold them within yourself or hire them on. When you don’t have both (and many of my clients don’t when they come to me), it can cause a ton of frustration and misunderstanding.

In this episode, you’ll be guided to understand your skills and roles as a leader and as a manager, and where you have gaps to fill to grow your skills in both areas.

Key areas discussed in this episode:

  • 00:41 How I first started to ask myself: in what ways am I a leader, and who am I leading?
  • 2:08 Questions to ask yourself to understand your relationship with being a leader
  • 2:34 What leadership always brings with it
  • 2:43 What it really means to be a leader
  • 6:53 Managing as a totally different skill set from leadership
  • 8:59 The piece that’s missing for a lot of consultants that ends up driving them crazy
  • 10:30 Why only you can be the leader of your business
